2.3 SCSI Bus Technology

2.3.1 Overview

SCSI is a local I/O bus that can operate over a wide range of data rates. The primary objective of this interface is to provide host computers with device independence within a class of devices. Thus, different disk drives, tape drives, printers, optical media drives, and other devices can be added to a host computer without requiring modifications to generic system hardware or software.
